Caring Behaviours

When we are in a longterm relationship, sometimes, we stop putting as much effort into our relationship as we did in the beginning. Life and life’s important distractions get prioritized over time with your partner. Your relationship becomes a garden that needs some weeding, or for some of us, needs some serious landscaping.
Make a commitment with your partner to engage in caring behaviours for each other. Take some time to write down:
a: what your partner did for you when you first got together that made you feel loved and cared for
b: what your partner does now that makes you feel loved and cared for
c: what you know you would love for your partner to do for you, however, you have not expressed this desire to your partner
Then, share your lists with each other. Post these lists on the refrigerator, and once a week, make a commitment to doing one of those caring behaviours for your partner.
We love and care for others in the way that we would want to be loved and cared for. The thing is, there are different love languages (5 in fact) and not everyone speaks the same one! So, what you desire may be different from your partner. It is important to be aware of this, embrace it, and put energy into doing something meaningful for your partner, even if it is not your cup of tea.
